Exo-2,3-Epoxynorbornane published on ChemPhysChem

Our work about exo-2,3-epoxynorbornane was published on ChemPhysChem, 2015, 16, 2609–2614. We showed a study of exo-2,3-epoxynorbornane in the gas phase by pulsed jet Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy in the 4–18 GHz region. Six isotopologues were observed and characterized in their natural abundance. The experimental substitution and effective structures were obtained. Comparison with the structure of norbornane …

CF3Cl···H2CO complex published in Chemistry A – European Journal

Internal dynamics in halogen bonded adducts was studied by microwave spectroscopy of chlorotrifluoromethane – formaldehyde complex. The interesting chemical aspect of this complex is that the two constituting molecules are held together by a halogen bond. The interesting spectroscopic aspects are the features of two large amplitude motions occurring in the complex: …

PCCP cover

A work on the intermolecular cluster pyridine-methane in collaboration with the group of Walther Caminati has been chosen as cover of PCCP. Methane behaves in the complex as a noble gas, binding on top of the aromatic ring. This T-shape structure contrasts with the in-plane structure of other pyridine clusters involving halomethanes.

Sevoflurane···benzene published in Angewandte

A work in collaboration with the Pate group in Virginia examined the weakly-bound cluster of sevoflurane···benzene ans was published in Angewandte Chemie. The primary interaction is a relatively strong C-H···pi hydrogen bond. The presence of additional C-H···F weak interactions hinders the six-fold symmetric internal rotation of benzene around sevoflurane. This …

The structure of antipyretics: phenazone

The conformational and structural preferences of phenazone (antipyrine), the prototype of non-opioid pyrazolone antipyretics, have been published in The Journal of Chemical Physics. The spectrum exhibited very complicated fine and hyperfine patterns originated by the simultaneous coupling of the methyl group internal rotation and the spins of the two 14N nuclei …
